Windows 7: stops at the screen "Loading Windows"

stops at the screen "Loading Windows"

HI

I have a Lenovo T410 laptop, in which I have formatted my hard drive completely including all default drives. Now I have a single partition, when I try to restore the windows 7 with the recovery DVDs which I have created when my laptop was working correctly. But it will boot with that DVD but stops at the screen "Loading Windows". Is there any settings I need to change before installing windows 7 to the bios or something. I tried with the other Windows 7 DVD from Microsoft MSDN, even though i am not successful.

Actually after deleted all the drives I have installed Windows XP and it was successful and when I try to install Windows 7 it is not going through. Please anyone suggest me any tips on how to install Windows 7 on my hard drive. Are there any other settings I need to change?
Thanks.

Hi vrsh, Welcome to Seven forums.

You can follow this tutorial for installing Win 7 and XP on your system. Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

Regarding the loading screen issue, this might be due to some faulty drivers. Follow the tutorial and keep all the drivers up to date.

HI

I have used same steps in my last trail but no use. I am not able to go beyond the grey screen saying 'Loading Windows'. And regarding the faulty drivers as you said, how to know which drivers are faulty. Actually I have tried by deleting all the partitions and installing 7 but again it gave me same issue. In that case there should not be any faulty drivers right because its a clean hard drive.

While following with the link provided atleast it didn't allow me to go to the 'Install Now' window. Even I tried with the recovery drives, Windows 7 DVD from MSDN and Windows Vista but no use, same issue in all the trials.

Are you able to boot the computer in Safe Mode?
I would suggest you to unplug all the external devices and then boot the computer and check if the issue is fixed.
You may also run System File Checker and check for corrupted system files.

Here's how you can do that. SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
